The above figures are the fighter payout information that promoters are required by California regulations to submit to the state athletic commission; they do not represent a full accounting of each fighter's income.

Fighters bear significant costs including training expenses, a percentage to management, a percentage to the trainer, plus insurance, licenses, and taxes.

On the income side, fighters receive apparel sponsorships from Reebok ranging from $3,500 to $50,000 for champions. Top draws can negotiate points on the pay per view net. Although it is not usual, in some cases there is an LOA [Letter of Agreement] on the contract for additional income. And lastly, many fighters earn income from teaching, from appearances, and in many cases from regular employment in the non-fighting space.
